I invited a little over 200 hoping for 150 (that was the number I was planning for from the start).  I had around 133 rsvp yes.  I had some no shows and some people who weren’t invited show up so it evened out but I am positive i think that I had more than 133 in total with all the kids.  Luckily it all worked out perfectly.  


I was so happy with the number that rsvp’d.  Out of say 211 (I think), 133 made it with the hopes for 150. I ended up inviting a few last minute people who i didn’t think I would be able to because I couldn’t afford more than 150 guests (that is how the number went up to over 200 as it was originally like 190 or so). 

Also 90% of my guests were local.

Mine was a destination so not very many people came compared to most statistics you’ll get out there.. I invited about 150ish and 60 plus bridal party were in the attendance.

RunsWithBears:  Hi, I was just looking at your post re A and B lists (c,d, and e)… I have had this happen to me before and while I didn’t really mind, i think some people may be offended.


The challenge is had with planning this out, is what happens if your No’s only RSVP “no” at the required date? I know what my friend and family are like and if its anything like our engagement party, some people didn’t tell us until the night before….
